Nice post: “Architecture in Context – Part 1”, By Charlie Alfred and Gene Hughson

When dealing with architecture, it is important that the context is filled spelled out. And context has multiple dimensions, when some of that is missing, the context may be poorly understood, endeavours may then become disconnected from reality.

Architecture in Context – Part 1 | Form Follows Function.

It’s really important to remind folks about context, this is a great take at it. The multidimensional aspect could easily be overlooked. Namely, the environment, time continuum, these bring about constraints that help to frame the context, and usually stakeholders don’t have any control over these other dimensions. When some of this is missing, endeavours may become disconnected from reality.

In my opinion, this isn’t stated often enough, instead a lot of debate tend to centre around definitions and the latest-fashion.
